Dubai doctor saves patient from life-threatening meningitis and kidney failure

A doctor at Zulekha Hospital Dubai recently saved an Egyptian patient, Mr. Aiman Mohammad, from a critical case of acute bacterial meningitis. The 58-year-old initially developed an infection in the forearm at the site of a previous Intravenous (IV) cannulation following a procedure at another hospital. This infection caused the patient to experience decreased consciousness and acute renal failure.


Dr. Ahmed Nader Youssef Ezeldin, Critical Care Medicine Specialist at Zulekha Hospital – Dubai, advised the immediate transfer of the patient to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after being diagnosed with acute bacterial meningitis and severe blood sepsis.

Dr. Ezeldin and the medical team completed a number of essential tests including blood and cerebrospinal fluid sampling. As a result, the patient was prescribed a course of antibiotics which saw him start to regain consciousness after a few days. Mr. Mohammed demonstrated gradual improvement as his kidneys started to perform as normal meaning that dialysis wasn’t required.


Dr. Ezeldin said, “We are so glad that Mr. Aiman was able to regain a normal life after being diagnosed with acute bacterial meningitis. When such a critical case of meningitis comes with an acute renal failure, it can lead to serious problems such as blindness, chronic kidney failure which requires continuous hemodialysis, or in some cases a lifelong coma. An early diagnosis and ICU transfer, choosing the right treatment, and quick application of medicine helped the patient to improve quickly and get back to his family and friends.”


After five days in the ICU, the patient was moved to another hospital bed where he made a full recovery, regained complete consciousness and kidney function. After a further three days, he was discharged from the hospital.


Mr. Aiman Mohammad said: “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Ezeldin and the team in Zulekha Hospital Dubai for their efforts which ultimately saved my life. Thankfully, I was able to go back to work without having to take any further medication, and am now back to living my normal life.”
